The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things Pinion related.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Suisei no Gargantia fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!

Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whinging and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favourite.

  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.

  • Discuss, don't chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel.

  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.

  • Use Spoiler tags!
    Spoilers are allowed, but they must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN.

    • Adding a Spoiler tag:
      Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms. Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!

    • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
      Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar. Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators to locate and deal with problems quickly.

Anyway, considering that Pinion wants to fight some (wait for it) whalesquid and
Spoiler for episode 8:
, would you say there's some parallels with Captain Ahab going on? Or do you think Ledo fits that description better?

I think that Ledo fits it better. Ahab is described as monomaniacal, which implies he is so obsessed with his purpose to kill Moby-dick that he can't think of much else.

Pinion, however, seems to be mainly concerned with money and pleasure (the first being a mean for the second in the end) and only secondarily to avenge his brother.

He'd be more likable if he wasn't plotting to kill Ledo for the first four episodes.

I was expecting him to have more interesting conversations with Chamber since he spent so much time trying to pry him open in the first episode. Shame.

I'm indeed disappointed in Pinion so fare I can only hope that his character can be redeemed somehow.

I wish he would stop talking and sounding exactly like Kamina while acting like a douchebag.

Pinion has become so self centered since the episode when Ledo first killed his first Whale Squid (Hideauze).

So this shows first portrayed Pinion as a villain and as a very unlikable douchebag and two episodes later it reforms him as some kind of hero, improving his appearance in the process.

Okay Pinion, you've changed from "useless asshole" to "useful asshole." Hope you're happy.

Looks like Pinion's finally getting serious.

Welll pinion has redeemed himself a somewhat after this week's episode, enough to change my opinion of him a bit.

Pinion looks a lot like his late brother with his hair down.
